Following last month’s report that a man had been arrested outside of the singer’s home in the Hollywood Hills, Ariana Grande has filed for a restraining order against an alleged stalker.
According to legal documents, the Republic Records recording artist has requested a restraining order from a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, claiming that the man in question has attempted to closely approach Grande for the past seven months and attempted to pull a “large hunting knife” on members of her security team while she was at home on September 9.
“I am informed that my security asked him to vacate the area. I am informed that later that same evening, at approximately 10:20 p.m., while I was home, (he) was again observed near my home. I am informed that he became combative when asked to leave and displayed a large hunting knife,” Grande stated. “I am informed that he was brandishing a knife and yelling threatening statements, including stating to my security, ‘I’ll f**king kill you and her.’ I am informed that after a pursuit, (he) was detained by officers from the Los Angeles Police Department.”
The superstar singer/songwriter has also requested that the restraining order be extended to protect her family members, including husband Dalton Gomez.
